Fantom on a H170 Sparky

As sourced by Advertiser newspaper dated Sept 12 2013.

A man has been arrested after police allegedly found a rocket launcher in his Birkenhead backyard.

The bomb squad searched the Hargrave St house after a tip-off about 8.45pm Tuesday. They allegedly found a spent 1970s rocket launcher, a replica firearm, a ballistic vest, assorted grenades and knives. The grenades and the rocket launcher were not active, but neighbouring residents were evacuated as a precaution. Defence Force officers helped dispose of the explosives.

Police arrested and charged the man, 53, with possessing a prescribed firearm!
